House kills stopgap spending bill containing $3.7 billion for disaster aid
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The House has rejected a measure providing $3.7 billion for disaster relief as part of a bill to keep the government running through mid-November.

The surprise 230-195 defeat for GOP leaders came at the hands of Democrats and tea party Republicans.

Democrats were opposed because the measure contains cuts to a government loan program to help car companies build fuel efficient vehicles.

For their part, many GOP conservatives feel the underlying bill permits spending at too high a rate.
